The official runtime for Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi action feature Tenet has been released by the Korea Media Ratings Board. The long-awaited film reportedly holds a total running time of 149 minutes and 59 seconds, making it one of Nolan’s shortest films following 2008’s The Dark Knight which is 152 minutes long. Because of this, his Matthew McConaughey-led film Interstellar remains the filmmaker’s longest sci-fi feature to date.
The Warner Bros. Pictures film has suffered previous delays regarding its theatrical release and is currently slated for an August 12 release. However, this still might be changed due to a recent surge of new COVID-19 cases as many theaters including all the ones in California have been closed down again which clearly puts movie releases next month in danger of potential delays.
Tenet will be an international espionage thriller filmed across seven countries. John David Washington ( BlacKkKlansman ) stars, with a supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson ( Good Time ), Elizabeth Debicki ( Widows ), Dimple Kapadia ( Fugly ), Aaron Taylor-Johnson ( Avengers: Age of Ultron ), Michael Caine ( The Dark Knight Rises ) and Kenneth Branagh ( Dunkirk ).
The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia , was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight , The Dark Knight Rises , Inception , Interstellar, and Dunkirk .
Tenet is written by Nolan and will utilize a mixture of IMAX and 70mm film, which is something he’s become famous for. Nolan is the film producing along with his partner Emma Thomas and is currently slated for an August 12 release.
